With an average ride time of an hour to an hour and 25 min, this electric surfboard only takes about 15 minutes to get the balance down until you are ready to take it on the open ocean. Like many of the other electric surfboards on this list, it is totally silent and has zero delay between engaging the acceleration and feeling its torque. To reach speeds while maintaining control, it has a wireless remote that allows riders to carve without losing their balance.

It uses an advanced lithium-ion battery and comes with a handheld wireless remote connected via Bluetooth that allows you to adjust the speed and also shows you useful information as you ride. There are 3 different modes that vary in power output so you can start light and progress through the levels as you get more comfortable.

Specs & Features

Top Speed30+ mph
Ride Time45 minutes

Max Weight Capacity220 lbs
DimensionsLength: 90", Width: 30", Height: 9.8"
Warranty2 Years

The Lampuga Air is the first board on this list to be designed with the whole family in mind. Unlike the carbon fiber bodies of its competitors, this motorized surfboard is quite large and is very soft with lots of handles. It’s great for families because it’s large enough to sit a child on the nose while you ride from the middle. If you are a boat owner and want to start using electric surfboards while you’re on the lake, you can easily tow the Lampuga Air behind your boat without worrying about it getting damaged from bumping into things.

The top speed is slightly lower than some of the other motorized boards at 30 mph but it is really easy to get back on if you fall off which makes it great for beginners. Keeping safety in mind, at times this board almost feels like an inflatable with a motor on top. It has a safety kill switch for the motor with a ripcord and also has one of the safest batteries in the industry with each cell residing inside its own enclosure. This electric surfboard is great for riders who love to surf and make their own wave!

7. Awake RÄVIK S

Great Performance & Craftsmanship

Specs & Features

Top Speed36 mph
Ride Time25-45 minutes
Weight86.2 lbs
Max Weight Capacity40 or 48 lbs
Dimensions69" x 24" x 11"
Warranty2 Years

The first of three RÄVIK models on this list, the Awake RÄVIK S has a nimble body and that was aerodynamically sculpted to preserve the maximum amount of energy in each turn. To help adjust to your riding style, it comes with an easy-to-use app that allows you to adjust the power settings of the motorized surfboard. As we have seen on other models, this is a great feature that really speeds up the learning process by allowing the rider to gradually progress through the different speed and power output options. The average run time on this electric surfboard is not as robust as some of the others on this list averaging between 20 – 45 minutes depending on your riding style. However, many riders choose to double up on batteries and take advantage of the RÄVIK’s hot-swap feature to give you that little extra juice. The average recharge time is approximately 80 minutes, so you’ll probably still have some downtime between rides.

Top Speed36 mph
Ride TimeUp to 60 minutes

Max Weight Capacity220 lbs
DimensionsLength: 70.5", Width: 24", Height: 7.5"
Warranty12 Months

For the second RÄVIK model on this list, the RÄVIK 3 offers many of the same qualities as the RÄVIK S 22 but is instead geared more towards beginners. To start, there is a jet pump on the bottom of the RÄVIK 3 that is on the outside which allows you to always have a full grip in choppy water as the engine always stays submerged. Like other models mentioned here, the RÄVIK 3 also works alongside an app that greatly speeds up the learning process. There are no annoying cable management clips or wires as the battery has a simple connector and is a plug-and-play experience. Unlike many other throttles that are activated by squeezing, this throttle is activated by a thumb press button which allows you to keep gripping the handle with your hand while you independently control the acceleration with your thumb.

Top Speed28+ mph

Compared to some of the other electric surfboards, the Torque Ripsonter is considerably heavier and makes good use of the wheels and trolly system you can use to transport your board. The board is all-electric and also features a removable battery, although this one uses a vacuum seal to keep everything in place. There is an optional speed limiter that you can engage to help minimize battery drain if that is something you are interested in, otherwise, feel free to leave it off. Overall, it is a very powerful and fast board even if it is a little bit noisy. This surfboard is amazing, fun, and great for new riders.

By far the most expensive board on this list, Olo wants you to know that this is in fact the ultimate electric surfboard with an equally fitting price tag to match. The name Olo is the name given to the boards that the Hawaiian chiefs used to surf back in the day. The updated shape of the board provides power levels comparable to the other electric surfboards but with increased aerodynamics due to the removal of all unnecessary bindings and handles. There is a convenient removable container in the center of the board where you can store valuables. The power box is also removable and slides out at the very back which makes it very easy to be serviced. At full speed, the battery lasts about 20 min, when cruising the battery can last around 35 to 40 minutes. Everything about the Olo one is fully customizable on the Olo website and features a wide selection of color combinations.
